LED, or light emitting diode therapy, is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue.
NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used by some aestheticians to help regenerate the skin from aging. It’s also used for acne.
Your healthcare provider uses red or blue light frequencies based on the skincare concern. Red is primarily used for anti-aging, while blue is used for acne treatment.

Emsculpt is a toning and firming technology that causes the muscles in the treatment area to contract using electromagnetic energy. These contractions are akin to doing a sit up or squat.

An IPL facial involves treating problem areas in the face with light energy. Sunspots, birthmarks, acne, discolored skin, and pigmentations are all able to be corrected with treatment by an IPL device by encouraging the cells causing the blemishes to break up and disappear.
The effects of an IPL facial begin to show about one week after treatment, but to enjoy lasting results; you should schedule your procedures every month. You will notice that the most optimal effects last up to five months.
